    Polanco getting his start at SS in what's likely his last game before being sent back down. Go get 'em Jorge.

    In 4 at bats, Polanco has 2 hits, both extra base hits.

    In 79 at bats, Florimon has 7 hits, 2 of which have been extra base hits.


    Can we just roll with Polanco for a month!?!

    I'm not sure Polanco is ready for the big leagues, but I'd imagine this should seal the fate of Florimon this offseason.

    Hey ... I think it should seal Flori's fate tomorrow. When Plouffe comes off the DL, keep Polanco until Nunez is ready and send Flori down.

    I was thinking more along the lines of DFA.

    So maybe someone has already addressed this here, but I haven't seen it, so: where will Polanco go if/when he gets sent back down? Back to Ft. Myers? That almost seems crazier than the jump from high A to the Show. There's definitely no-one in his way at New Britain.
